Combining spacious surroundings and friendly service with stylish entertainment and delicious cuisine, Columbus is the perfect choice for those looking for the ultimate experience and comfort. Offering a wide range of on-board experiences including seven different lounges and bars, two specialty coffee and tea shops, and two deck bars, this ship gives guests ample choice to tailor their leisure time around their preferences. You will never be short of amusement aboard this ship cruise, as our Dome Observatory, Nightclub and Palladium Show Lounge host nightly performances by the talented Columbus show team and renowned guest stars. There is even a large floor for ballroom dancing!


However, she still retains a feel of intimacy and personal attention when compared with the ‘mega’ resort style cruising lines built today. The spacious surroundings on-board mean that you’ll always find a quiet retreat where you can put your feet up and simply take in the ocean views. Whether you choose to seek sanctuary with a good book in the library, get creative in the new Crafter’s Studio, get energised at the fully-equipped gym or unwind with a relaxing massage, ‘me-time’ doesn’t get better than this.


1400 passenger Columbus was purpose-built for deep sea ocean cruising 


Columbus underwent an extensive refit in August 2015 and was upgraded further in April 2017 to offer five dining options, two specialty coffee and tea shops, a choice of seven lounge bars including a British Pub, plus two deck bars, six entertainment venues including the three decked central Atrium and tiered Palladium Show Lounge.




Arts & Crafts 



These may include millinery, bead jewellery, mosaic decoration, calligraphy, and decorative card art. You may need to buy materials on board which will be supplied by the crafter for a modest charge.


An Audience With… 



Where you are invited to listen to an invited guest speaker or performer talk about their life experience and expert knowledge interspersed with questions from you, the audience. This offers you a great chance to become involved and be a part of the fun. 


A Laugh on the Ocean Waves 



Enjoy the talents of  guest comedians Laughter is the best medicine so enjoy the talents of  comedy acts with their dedicated evening shows, hear them talk about their life experience and listen to their Comedy Corner interviews with the Cruise Director.


Guest Speakers 



Learn more about a fascinating subject from someone who is passionate about their interest and will want to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with you. CMV cruises of five nights or more are accompanied by one or more of these experts giving informative talks or practical sessions on a range of fascinating subjects. These speaker subjects may include maritime history, broadcasting, gardens, and even criminology! They are generally programmed to take place during days spent at sea rather than in port so that you won’t miss out.


CMV Club Class 



If you’d like to play bridge, backgammon, chess or another activity, simply have a word with the Librarian. After a brief sign-up session you are then put in touch with other passengers who share the same interests, allowing you to make the most of your time aboard. It’s never forced – just helpful.


Evening Entertainment 



Following dinner the show team would enjoy the pleasure of your company in the comfortable Show Lounge as our artists display their talents in a stylish show - all you need to do is just sit back and enjoy. Speciality acts and guest entertainers complement the show team to ensure that your evenings go with a swing. For a little night music, there are different combos around the ship, including classical interludes with our resident pianist and violinist, who will play for your listening pleasure. If however it is quieter pleasures that you prefer, how about a few hands of cards or making up a table for a syndicate quiz.


Daytime Activities 



When at sea, you may choose from a work-out in the gym; a make-over in the beauty salon; a swim in the pool; deck games or join in a quiz. There’s always something going on.
